And in this post, we are talking exactly about that. We are talking about tips on how to become that girl in 2021. These tips will essentially help you glow up and become that girl too.
What is the ‘that girl’ trend on TikTok?
So if you are wondering what exactly does it mean to be “THAT GIRL”, here is what you need to know. That Girl trend on Tik Tok is exactly like the VSCO Girl trend that popped up a couple of years back or the Hot Girl Summer trend. It is all about living your best life and being known as the nice girl and not the Bitchy one. There is also a very specific aesthetic that’s associated with being that girl.
That Girl wakes up early, works on her body, eats fruits, does her skin care routine, before you’ve even woken up. And this is what sets her apart. She is essentially the definition of perfection. But becoming that girl is not about being someone else or copying their lifestyle. It’s about becoming the best version of yourself.
And over the last couple of weeks, tiktokers have been sharing videos with tips on how you can become that girl and how you can have “that girl lifestyle” as well. The whole idea behind these videos is to be striving to be the best you can be. Being that girl means focussing on yourself and achieving your goals. It means nourishing your body and being a boss girl instead of focussing on things that are not important. Being that girl is all about realising your true potential and living the life you have always dreamed of.
How does one become ‘that girl’?
If being “That Girl from TikTok” sounds like something you want to do, then here is how to go about it. You need to think about a couple of things in advance.
How “That Girl” Looks:
That girl always looks attractive, no matter what she decides to wear. From cocktail dresses for parties to matching lounge wear sets, she can rock anything. And the reason why she can wear anything and still look good is because of her great taste in fashion. But it’s also partially due to the fact that “that girl” is always fit and takes care of her body.
She also has amazing hair and glowing skin and all this is because again, she takes care of it. She has a skin care routine that she follows religiously. Same goes with hair care. Basically, she is focussed on her overall wellness and that’s why she looks so attractive and like she has her whole life figured out.
She looks super fit. And to be that girl, you need to take care of your body as well. And it doesn’t mean that you should strive to fit into 4 dress sizes smaller than yours. It just means being confident in your body and your skin and taking care of it.
That girl also knows what type of clothes to wear for which occasion and she is always appropriately dressed. You will always find her in professional wear at meetings but that doesn’t mean she can’t rock a sexy dress on a night out with girls.
She also always looks put together, even when she has made no efforts. And that’s because she doesn’t buy things that are trendy. She buys things and clothes after giving them a lot of thought. She knows how she is going to style something even before she has bought that piece of clothing. She also always looks confident. She is the kind of girl who will walk into a room and turn all heads towards her, because that’s the kind of aura she has about her.

And I know it is easier said than done, but then again, most of it is going to require real efforts from you. I don’t want you to think of “That Girl” as a body size, because that’s when these trends start going toxic. You need to think of being that girl as being the best version of yourself. Or improving yourself while still being yourself.
And that’s the key when it comes to personal development or self improvement. You do not want to copy someone, rather you are looking to improve yourself while still retaining your identity and while still being as authentically yourself as possible.
So how to get “That Girl look”:
- Take care of your body, skin and hair: Here is how to have a GLOW UP IN 30 DAYS and be Prettier.
- Dress for the occasion & wear what you are comfortable & confident in.
- Adopt habits that will help you build Self confidence
How “That Girl” Eats:
In the videos shared by people on Tiktok, that girl eats a very healthy diet. You’ll mostly see her eating yogurt bowls or smoothies for breakfast. Now, while there is absolutely nothing wrong with eating healthy and I think we should all try to do so everyday. I just want to give you a little disclaimer here.
Not everything in everyone’s life is exactly how it looks like on social media. And you definitely don’t need to copy the lifestyle. All you should be doing is getting a general idea and then making it your own.
So when it comes to what does that girl eat? All you need to focus on is eating healthy and listening to your body. There is absolutely nothing wrong with eating toast for breakfast if that’s what you’re wanting to. And just because someone follows a dairy free and gluten free diet, doesn’t mean that you have to as well.
Here are some general tips that you should keep in mind when it comes to eating healthy:
- Eat more fruits and veggies : Focus on having at least 1 plant based meal a day and if you hate veggies, then try sneaking them into smoothies with fruits.
- Drink more water & keep yourself hydrated.
- Include healthy fats in your diet: Some great sources are avocados, nuts and seeds
- Think about balance and also about your portion size and educate yourself a little about the macros, so you’re not just eating carbs throughout the day.
How “That Girl” Hangs:
“That Girl” hangs out with other people who are as motivated and wellness oriented as she is. She doesn’t go out every night and doesn’t party as much (according to the tiktok videos). I am not saying there is anything wrong with partying occasionally. But yes, if you are going out every other night and have no routine of your own, then you can’t really focus on your overall wellness.
So that girl always hangs out with people who are motivated and driven. Friends who go out for brunches and eat Acai bowls together instead of partying at night.
How “That Girl” Does It All
From the outside it looks like that girl has her entire life figured out and not a thing is ever out of place. And that makes one wonder who does that girl do it all.
And the fact is, she is very organised. She organises her life, either in a bullet journal or has another system like a file and folder system for her. She automates her payments and savings so she doesn’t forget about them.
